The authors describe a vertical reduction mammaplasty technique for avoiding skin excess at the vertical scar. Conical projection of the breast is achieved by cranial to caudal gland-shaping sutures. Excision of redundant skin is performed in a triangular pattern, creating bilateral dog ears. Resection of these dog ears results in a short, symmetrical horizontal scar located at the new submammary line.
